Leica CV5030 Cover Slipper

Leica CV5030 Cover Slipper

Cambridge ID #: 11755

The Leica CV5030 fully automated glass coverslipper produces slides with superior optical quality for reliable long-term storage.

Its capability of handling a large variety of slide racks from different suppliers makes the Leica CV5030 very flexible. All common mounting media, including xylene-free varieties, can be used.

The operator can choose wet or dry coverslipping. The CV5030’s performance achieves three goals: Highly consistent and reliable coverslipping quality, full adaptation to individual laboratory set-ups, integration into staining/coverslipping workstations to form a fully automated walk-away system.


  • True walk-away operation: Can be used stand-alone or interfaced with the Leica ST5010 or ST5020 Stainers for true walk-away operation.
  • 400 coverslips at a rate: Coverslips at a rate of 400 slides per hour using standard microscope slides and glass coverslips of different sizes to increase productivity and efficiency in the lab.
  • Open system design: Through its open system design, a broad range of mountants can be used for the highest flexibility. 
  • Added flexibility: The CV5030 can be used for different purposes at the same time, e.g. for histology and cytology for added flexibility.
  • Fume extraction system: The integrated fume extraction system with activated charcoal filter, produces lower concentrations of xylene or xylene substituts in the air, reducing exposure to hazardous fumes for laboratory personnel.


  • Throughput: Approx. 400 slides/hour
  • Coverslip sizes: 22-24 x 40-60 mm
  • Coverslip magazine capacity: 120-160 coverslips (depending on size)
